1978 Rickenbacker 4001 in excellent and all original condition, Fireglo finish, includes the original hard shell case.

There are a few small patches of wear at the butt end of the bass and a few tiny nicks here and there but otherwise the body is extremely clean, as is the back of the neck and headstock. I think the small patches of wear are due to the bass being kept on a stand. The truss rods work as they should. The action is set nice and low and the frets are in great shape. The string mute foam shows some deterioration but is still functional.

The pots and serial number date this bass to 1978. All in all this Rickenbacker plays, looks and sounds great. This bass is ideal for a collector or player. Weight: 9.3 lbs . Serial number: RK-6988. (November 1978) Fully set up by my technician Chris Ward.Come down and try this bass along with all my other stock at my showroom in Shoreditch.
